The Professional Scrum Master (PSM) training is one of them and is an engaging and proactive course that teaches about the methodologies of Professional Scrum and the responsibilities of a Scrum Master.
The training offers a comprehensive grasp of the basic ideas of Scrum and the Agile mentality through a combination of discussion and exercises, as well as the techniques used by successful Scrum teams.

Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO)
Scrum continues to prove to be an effective method of working as a leading framework for introducing agility to product development. Because of the transformative benefits it provides, this methodology is quickly infiltrating many organizations, particularly software development organizations. The Product Owner plays a fundamental role in the Scrum Team, whose mission is to maximize the value of the product and optimize the work of developers. If the Product Owner does not fulfill the function as defined by Scrum, the possibility of product success is at risk. As a result, there is a growing need for Product Owners and those who shape the product to comprehend the whole scope of Product Ownership in its original form and benchmark their learning. Scrum.org's Professional Scrum Product Owner (PSPO) certification is the most prestigious of all Scrum Product Owner certifications.
